The purpose of this series is to increase the knowledge base of participants in the pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and management of celiac disease to make them aware of the potential increase of morbidity and mortality and to educate about the nature of a gluten-free diet. 

The target audience is adult and pediatric physicians and physician's assistants, nurse practitioners, fellows, dietitians and nutritionists, researchers and patients.

This is the first in a series of 10 bimonthly programs. Other topics include:

  • Clinical features and diagnosis of celiac disease in both children and adults.
  • Management of celiac disease after diagnosis: How healthy is a gluten-free diet?
  • Pathogenesis of celiac disease and the role of the microbiome.
  • Extraintestinal manifestations of celiac disease as risk factors for the diagnosis and their assessment after diagnosis. Evaluation of comorbid conditions. 
  • Management of the poorly responsive patient. Can the diet be stricter? Is this refractory celiac disease?
  • If it is not celiac disease, what could it be? How common is seronegative celiac disease and non-celiac villous atrophy?
  • Non-celiac gluten sensitivity. How do we diagnose and manage this condition?
  • Two important issues: malignancy and osteoporosis in celiac disease.
  • Quality of life in celiac disease.  What are the factors contributing to QOL and how can we do a better job?
